Louisiana lawmaker proposes adding attacks on police to hate crimes list

Following a spate of violence and threats against law enforcement officers over recent years, lawmakers in one state are hoping to ensure those who target police are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

The Louisiana House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill that would expand the state’s hate crimes statute to include violence against law enforcement officers and other first responders.

Republican Rep. Lance Harris, who supports the bill, explained that Louisiana
has a “pretty extensive hate crime law right now, but [he believes it] should add firefighters and policemen.”
